'Titans' Season 3: Barbara Gordon will join the show as Oracle; Roy Harper aka Red Arrow may make appearance
Barbara Gordon will join the 'Titans' show as hacker genius Oracle, the former Batgirl and sometimes romantic partner of Dick Grayson
The Robins aren't the only ones who have helped Batman in his crusade against crime. Barbara Gordon has proved an invaluable ally and she will be joining 'Titans' in its third season when the show returns.
Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Police Commissioner Jim Gordon, began her superhero career as Batgirl. However, after being crippled following an attack by the Joker, Barbara Gordon continued her fight against crime as Oracle. Oracle aided Batman, and eventually most heroes of the DC universe by providing tech guidance, coordination, and an extra eye in the sky, all with her prodigious hacking and general computer skills.
It is the Oracle incarnation of the Batwoman character who will be appearing in 'Titans' Season 3, according to a report by DiscussingFilm.net. The website also reports that Barbara Gordon will double as the head of the Gotham City Police Department following the death of her father, Jim Gordon. The site reports that the show is seeking actresses that use wheelchairs for the role.
It's not reported whether she will join the Titans team or not, but if she does, it will bring the team some much-needed organization. It may also change the team dynamic somewhat - she has had an on-again-off-again tenuous relationship with Dick Grayson for most of their comic book history.
It has been rumored that Roy Harper/Arsenal/Red Arrow has also been cast for Season 3, according to Batman News, who cited entertainment insider Emre Kaya as a source. Regular The CW viewers will recognize the character from 'Arrow' as the protege of Oliver Queen/Green Arrow. This will be the character's first appearance in the Titans universe, however, a separate continuity from the CW's Arrowverse.
'Titans' Season 3 has not announced a release date for Season 3 yet, but aims to begin filming in Toronto in March.
